Cmusic Production has released the SAXBAND Full Bundle library for Kontakt 5.
SAXBAND Full Bundle allows a user to imitate many tones that a real saxophone could play (Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Baritone Sax and Soprano Sax). It was recorded using Mid-side technology with multiple articulations and production techniques to create the impression of a live performance.
CMP recorded all intervals for up and down articulations in three variants: normal Legato, Portamento and Glissando. They have provided the ability to vary the dynamics of the instrument to convey a wide, detailed range of expression from pp to ff. Natural and LFO vibrato may be added to the sound at any time. Sustain, Staccato and Marcato articulations provide added realism by means of a 3-x round-robin algorithm.
